Desmond for Freeman?(WHIR)

Postby kidsilk » Mon May 20, 2013 5:52 pm

10 team, H2H league, 6 keepers with no restrictions, 9x9 cats, shallow league with 19 man rosters

I have been offered HIS Ian Desmond for my Freddie Freeman. I need a SS with Everth manning the position right now but is Freeman too much to give up? But, I do have 3 first baseman.

My Team:

C-Rosario
1B-Pujols
2B-Rutledge
3B-Panda
SS-Everth Cabrera
LF-Victorino
CF-McCutchen
RF-Parra
U-Fielder
U-Freeman
DL-Stanton

SP-Kershaw
SP-Lee
SP-MadBum
RP-Rivera
RP-Perkins
P-Minor
BN-Axford
BN-Cobb

No you don't need a SS. Even with the surplus of 1B you can still start all 3, and Freeman > Desmond.

I'm in the same boat as you there's nothing wrong with Everth at SS. Freeman for Desmond isn't too bad actually. I have Profar thank god (i was running out the likes of Punto, Crawford and "insert hot ww scrub here" at my MI. I have tried any combination of Dempster, Moreland, Holliday and nothing doing...even trying Dempster for Rutledge. He rejected the one offer and let the others sit. God some owners need to be more thorough!

Just a thought...maybe instead of trying to upgrade at your MI where your solid try getting a stud RF for Freeman instead...?

Now the guys says he will trade Aaron Hill and Ian Desmond for Freeman. Worth it?
